- "The Principles and Purposes of the Unitarian Universalist Association," published online at http://www.uua.org/principles.html. Currently, the prevailing UU position is that abortion and assisted suicide are morally and legally valid individual choices. There appears to be little open critical reflection over whether a different position might better honor the professed values of UUs.
